No off TV, no sale. I don't even have half enough time to progress in the games I have. If I need to wait for the wife to sleep to play, it will just add to my backlog.

no need to derail the thread by justifying this to them, you made your choice not to buy the game because it has no off tv play no big deal it is your money

I say no eShop no Sale all the time, I kinda mean it, until a really good game I want to play comes along... I still like games after all, being a Nintendo fan has never been about convenience :)

again anyone know the size of this file?

This comparison just awakened a pining for another Lost Vikings game. Ah well, I'll take this.

The Giant Bomb QL of the 360 version had it at about 1 Gig, so I have to imagine the eShop one will be around that size.

Watching the Quick Look EX now and the humour isn't doing much for me yet. Maybe they're aiming for a younger audience?

I only watched a fraction of the Quick Look as to not spoil too much and I enjoyed what I saw. I'm 24, for reference.

Also I GET A FREE TF2 HAT FOR PREORDERING ON STEAM? Can't go wrong with this.

I dunno, I thought "My daughter can be hard to swallow sometimes" was pretty funny, and if that's just early on I'd expect it to get better along the way.

It is still dark humor, but younger is not a big deal

This is where the demo will play a big role for me. Definitely not blind-buying it.

I'm only 21, I just meant maybe they were goin' for teens since the bits and pieces of humour I saw seemed pretty Nickelodeon-y (the opening monologue from the Cave was pretty painful). But as I watch more it just seems like some of the jokes are pretty bad and some are good.

I am taking it as a game that is not taking itself too seriously, nothing happens when you die for example. There are a lot of fan service for those who played older games by Ron.
Much of the funny comes from that history the rest comes from the game just being very odd. I don't see the humor as childish at all, I'm 39 I don't think teens would enjoy this humor. I think the younger you are the more turned off you are to child-like things. It is not that serious if you just relax and not read so much into it seeking a deeper meaning but that is easier said than done I guess.

Humor is pretty much a taste thing, I would not call that a good metric of good/bad about this game.

Worth noting for EU peeps: While Nintendo America does it's updates on Tuesday, Nintendo Europe does their update on the Thursday - and usually the update comes at noon so you likely won't see The Cave available on Wii U till Thursday afternoon. Xbox updates are usually noon tomorrow so that will be the earliest release of The Cave for the EU market

I knew very little about this game, but I just watched the GB Quick Look, and I'm now intrigued. It definitely has a very endearing old Lucasarts meets Psychonauts vibe to it, at least when it comes to the aesthetics and the tone.

At least it shows that they're fairly flexible about when games go live.

I'll let you know if there's off-screen play after it installs. OT but I haven't used the WiiU to browse too often but I'm really loving it! I just learned that - by holding both triggers, I can zoom up and down pages easily.

Wii U developers really are going to have a hard time making games for the system. Some people won't buy if the game doesn't have off-TV play, some won't buy if it doesn't support the pro-controller, some won't buy if it doesn't support IR. Not saying I don't agree with people who won't support a missing feature, but still something that companies making games for the Wii U have to think about.

I heard it takes like two lines of code.

It's one thing to not have it in games like ZombiU, it's another to not have it in games like this.

I usually am for whatever the developer wants but I think it's bullshit here.

Do we have any word on how big this game is? During Giantbomb's quick look they seemingly went through the knight's story!
